Celebrate Presidents Day by reading one of these new books about Presidents Lincoln and Washington:

Killing Lincoln: the shocking assassination that changed America forever, by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, describes the events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the hunt to track down John Wilkes Booth and his accomplices.

The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery, by Eric Foner, traces the evolution of Abraham Lincoln's ideas and policies on slavery from his early career to his presidency, placing Lincoln within the broad spectrum on antislavery thought.

The Whites of Their Eyes: Bunker Hill, the first American Army, and the emergence of George Washington, by Paul Douglas Lockhart, combines military and political history to offer a major reassessment of one of the most famous battles in American history.

American Crisis: George Washington and the dangerous two years after Yorktown, 1781-1783, by William M. Fowler, chronicles the tumultuous and critical two years following the battle of Yorktown until the British left New York in November 1783.
